Any development project in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) requires a building permit from the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). After submitting a building permit application to DCRA, the reviewing agencies (i.e., DCRA, DDOE and HSEMA) will review and approve the permit in accordance with the Floodplain Review Flowchart.
